Why Commission a Work of Art?

To commission a painting or work of art means getting the subject matter, medium, size, and artist you want. Commissioning a painting or a work of art brings you into the artistic creative process to produce the work you desire. Artist fees vary but commissioning a painting or work of art often costs no more than buying one off the gallery wall.

The Federation of British Artists' (FBA) Commission Service has been established for over 20 years.
